Thank you for your front-page coverage on the passing of Guy Whidden. He was not only a national treasure and emblematic of an entire passing generation, but he also made significant contributions to the fabric of life here.

Even though my wife and I moved just across the Washington County line a while back, we are both Fredericktonians; both Thomas Johnson graduates. When we say, “Let’s go downtown,” we’re certainly not talking about Hagerstown.

A few months ago, there were some articles and letters to the editor concerning whether or not power plants would have enough capacity to supply the electrical load added by electric vehicle chargers. Last month, California Gov. Gavin Newsom has told citizens not to charge their EVs in the l…

The editorial cartoon on Page A11 (Sept. 14) contained an error that illustrates much of what ails our society in the 21st century.

Thanks to the News Post for covering an issue of great importance to Myersville (“Myersville Residents Wary of Dollar General Store Planned for Main Street,” Sept. 7, edition of The Frederick News-Post). The construction of a Dollar General store on Myersville’s Main Street has the potential…

On Thursday, Sept. 1, a high school football player, Greyson Lyons, experienced a parent’s worst nightmare: He died on the field during a game. He was resuscitated and flown to Shock Trauma, where he is thankfully recovering.

Before we accuse a political figure of being a racist, as has been done in a letter to the editor in this newspaper (“Fitzwater should not be placed in a position of authority, Monday, Sept. 5, Page A9), perhaps we should better understand the context in which Jessica Fitzwater discussed rac…

The author of Monday’s letter to the editor, “Nothing New Under the Sun,” (Page A9) is right — we should look to our Founding Fathers for guidance. But a close look at their belief systems reveals flawed logic leading to the opposite conclusion.

Tuesday night, as I listened to the public weigh in on the Sugarloaf Treasured Landscape Management Plan at the Frederick County Council meeting, I was even more certain that the Planning Commission got it right.

Regarding George Smith’s letter to the Frederick News-Post of Sept. 10-11, 2022, (“Joe Biden is not to blame for all our problems”, Page D2), well, actually, he is to blame.

Rick Blatchford’s call for a return to “domestic tranquility” is laudable but likely not a sincere sentiment as he dedicates most of his letter, printed in the Sept. 10-11 edition of The Frederick News-Post (Page D2), to complaining about singular comments made by Democrats he finds that wer…

I am writing in response to the column: “How the scourge of originalism is taking over the Supreme Court,” in the Sept. 8 edition (Page A11) of The Frederick News-Post. The column was written by Edwin Chimerinsky, the Dean of the UC Berkeley School of Law.

Michael Locke’s letter published in the Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 3-4 edition of The Frederick News-Post (Page D2) regarding the city doing nothing for local road improvements needed because of development along Kemp Lane and Shookstown Road was spot on.

Recently, there was a local event that was held to remember those who perished from the scourge of heroin and fentanyl. My heart goes out to the devastated families of those whose loved ones have been the victims of this deadly plague. As someone who saw firsthand families and communities cr…

A debate between gubernatorial candidates Dan Cox and Wes Moore could be very helpful to voters. It could inform us of their stances on specific issues, let us see how they perform under pressure, and also give some indication of their civility when dealing with opposing ideas.

William Bugg, whose letters appear regularly in the News-Post, has done it again. In a letter titled “America is in trouble,” (Page A9, Monday, Sept. 5 edition of The Frederick News-Post), Mr. Bugg blames many, if not all, of our problems on our current president. For example, inflation (whi…

Last month, The Washington Times published an article that reported a story from Ankara, Turkey. It read in part, “A Turkish court on Monday released pop star Gulsen from jail but placed her on house arrest as she awaits trial on charges of ‘inciting hatred and enmity’ for a joke she made…”

I believe our country is at its lowest point since the Great Depression in the 1930s. I believe we are being led, not by any real leaders but by people who seemingly have no idea how to do the job they agreed to do for America.

I am a transplant from Montgomery County. During my 68 years in residency there, I watched with unbridled dismay as the county went from a wonderful place to live to a hellhole of woke policies, rules and restrictions. I moved to Frederick County as a respite from Montgomery County’s oppress…

What a shocker when I read that the city of Frederick opts not to design a road that runs through Area B in Fort Detrick. A story was published in the Saturday-Sunday, Aug. 27-28 Frederick News-Post (Page A1).

So this Saturday, another NASA mission to the moon has been scheduled. During the Apollo/Neil Armstrong days, some legitimate purposes for such a trip may have existed. Any purposes today are highly esoteric at best, and are truly the most pathetic waste of money ever. Ever.

Kudos to Mayor Michael O’Connor and the Board of Aldermen for the resolution, unanimously approved Aug. 18, 2022, requesting federal action on nuclear disarmament (Thursday, Aug. 18 online edition of The Frederick News-Post). Kudos also to the citizens who brought this issue to the mayor’s a…
